Choosing the Right Edge For Your Granite Installation

When considering a beautiful granite installation, the first thing homeowners tend to think about is the color of the stone: the tone, the undertone, the shine, etc.  Yet the edge you choose for your granite countertops is also an important decision, as it has implications for style, cleaning, and safety.Countertop Edge

You can familiarize yourself with the different edge types available on our website.  For a sleek, ultra-modern look, many homeowners and designers favor a perfectly straight edge.  Its clean lines will certainly complement a contemporary design, yet it is also important to remember that the corners of your granite countertops will be quite sharp, so a family with young children might forego the straight edge.

Instead, those with a high-traffic kitchen, a smaller space, or simply more kitchen regulars might prefer a rounded or bullnosed edge, which will be more forgiving when someone bumps into it.  At any height, these edges are a safe choice for your kitchen.

A fine compromise for those who wish to have a duller edge but still maintain clean lines could be our beveled edge, which also provides for a surface that is very easy to clean.

Lastly, we offer premium edges like ogee and cove ogee for a truly luxurious look in your kitchen.  This seemingly small detail will actually have a huge design impact on your room, and looks especially nice with light granite, quartz, or marble countertops.
